The Internet is very, very quiet this morning, as most people are still trying to make sense of a tragedy that makes no f*cking sense. But here’s what we do know: James Holmes is a 24-year-old doctoral student and “normal dude” who likely took a lot of Vicodin before heading into an Aurora, Colorado movie theater. The rest of his story — like how he could do something unthinkably awful — is still being worked out.
TMZ did some very TMZ-like digging, and found that Holmes has an Adult Friend Finder page.
“Holmes” created the profile on AdultFriendFinder.com July 5 — and included a picture of himself with reddish, orange hair…just as officials in Aurora, CO said he looked when he was apprehended Friday morning.
“Holmes” — who used the screen name classicjimbo — included a cryptic message on the top of the profile which reads, “Will you visit me in prison?” (Via)
His account — which also reveals his “male endowment” as “short/average” — has since been taken down, which is what I wish could be done to this distasteful MSNBC animated recreation of the shooting spree.
Thanks, MSNBC, wouldn’t have known what a grey blob wearing body armor throwing smoke bombs at other grey blobs would have looked like without you.
